As the story progressed, with it's twists and turns, I became engrossed in the story, wanting to find out the 'whys, hows, and whos'. Draughon's additional characters possess the same realism as his protagonist, and I was equally impressed with his ability to make me feel like these were ordinary people, caught up in extraordinary circumstances.
I don't recall any 'slow spots' in the story. As a matter of fact, it only picked up in its intensity the further I got into the book.
Heather is a story about people, trust, broken trust, relationships, the dynamics which make up family-both conventional and non, the very real and often controversial issues that we're faced with, and the consequences of choices we made yesterday, living with and often eating us up, today. It is a wonderfully told story of inner conflict and ultimate resolution, not only with Ruth, the story's main character, but with the other major players in this captivating story. Without divulging too much, Draughon's twist ending is to be commended, as it not only surprised me, but left me with a feeling of hope and an appreciation for great story writing.
I'd recommend "Heather" highly.
But once Ruth and Heather are united everything becomes right in their world. Soon Heather will have her own baby, and Ruth and Jack will be grandparents.
This story hit me hard; right in the gut. I felt every bit of Ruth's pain, and Jack's anger and sadness. Delving deep inside Ruth one can see how traumatized she'd been for years at the loss of her only child. But the sadness and anger were warranted, and the book well worth reading to the end, where the sun finally shines down on Ruth, Jack and Heather.
Not only is this a one-night read story, I was absolutely impressed by the fact that if I hadn't known a man had written HEATHER, I would have thought it had been written by a woman. Bravo, Mr. Draughon!
